SOC 2600 - Leadership Across the Disciplines

This course for 2nd year students examines leadership from different disciplinary perspectives, including commerce and a variety of liberal arts disciplines. The course will include guest speakers from different departments in the College and the Commerce School, and several outside speakers from the private and public sectors. Topics include, but are not limited to: civic responsibility; social activism; historical perspectives; transformational leadership; followership; problem solving and decision making; cultural factors; personal factors; power and influence; visionary leadership; ethics; and Presidential leadership. Throughout, three questions pertain: 1) Where are the opportunities for leadership? 2) How do leaders think? and 3) What do the best leaders do? This course serves as a stand-alone course and also as a prerequisite to advanced leadership courses. Students interested in taking the leadership curriculum-another three-hour course in the third year, followed by a six-hour, field-based independent study in a leadership role, will submit an application later in the semester. The course is cross-listed as COMM 2600. The course is not a prerequisite for the Commerce School, and does not fulfill any Commerce School requirements. Prerequisite: 2nd Year students Interested in Leadership.
